Baby BoBo is BACK!!!

Yipee!!! We are so excited to have Baby Bobo back in stock at StorkLand Wichita Falls. I know my Tyler and OKC customers are anxious to get their hands on these wonderful items as well. No worries Bobo is sewing her little heart out and will have them shipped ASAP!

Baby Bobo took a few months sabbatical in order to go to China and pick up the newest member of their family, Kate. I had the privilege of meeting sweet Kate after Mike and Ashley's return from China and just before their move to Auburn. They have had a REALLY busy last couple of months. The family is all settled now and Kate is adjusting better than anyone could have ever expected. (but honestly I was never worried with a mama like Bobo and a daddy like Mike and 2 incredible big sisters--she never had a chance) I just LOVE this family to death and miss them more than words could ever explain. For those of you who are not familiar with Baby Bobo you are going to LOVE it. We carry both the Woobie Wipe and the Bailey Bib.


There are a ton of different fabric combinations to choose from and it make the most affordable and practical baby gift while still being a show stopper. The Woobie Wipe is the perfect size burp clothe but can also double as a lovie for baby. We sell these for $13.99 each


The Bailey Bibs are double sided and close with Velcro. I am still using these with Henry and LOVE them. They sell for $9.99




Welcome back Bobo we missed you!!!!

Guy is finally here!!!

Seriously Emma has talked about Guy coming for 2 weeks. I totally missed the second she saw him :( as soon as she got out of bed she came down the hall and said where is guy?

I think it is too funny that Henry immediately claimed the new elf plush Guy brought them!!

Mark My Time


So if you have a child in grades 1st-6th. They must have required reading time each night. I know Emma and Grace both do. The last time Grace was at the house after school she was doing her reading and I bet she asked me 10 time..."how long has it been" Now don't get me wrong. She loves to read and she wasn't complaining...she honestly wanted to know. So I found these. I think they are so great. It is a book mark with a built in timer. Now your kiddo knows just how much longer they have. What are great stocking stuffer...SANTA are you listening!!!

Tag A Long

The Tag A Long has been put to good use by my family already! I got one of these as a sample at the ABC show and the next weekend we had Shad's Iron Man competition. Henry loves to ride in his stroller but we knew this was going to be a long day and he would want to get out several times. Lets just say it worked like a charm!!! Whenever he got out and wanted to walk I told him he had to hold onto his handle and amazingly enough he did.

I like the Tag A Long because it keeps him close by me. We were in some very large crowds and I didn't want him to have very much distance between us. There are several other products like this on the market with straps but I think they give to much length/distance. You can get tangled up in them very easily. The Tag A Long keeps our babies close by.
It also worked well for when I needed Emma to be close by and Henry was riding. Whenever we got into a crowd and Henry was riding Emma would follow suit and hold on. It was great.
We are also using this at the grocery store. Henry is getting a little big for the basket and likes to walk. I am not scared in the super market but he does wander a bit. This is really helping us keep task so that my trips don't take quite so long.
They are just $9.99 and come in several colors.

Bubble Gun

If you are looking for that Christmas Gift that is going to STEAL the SHOW!!!! Here it is...The bubble/laser gun. They are only $7.99 and they come with 2 bottles of bubbles. My good friend Marci gave me this line at Christmas Magic because her booth (Funky Friends) sold 144 of them on Saturday and she was out. She told everyone I would have them....so now I do. We just put them out about an hour ago and 1/2 the order is gone.
I just LOVE this thing!!!

Spiffies

I have to tell you I was totally sceptical of these wipes when my mom found them at the ABC Show. Who is really going to use these???ME ME ME...I am going to use them and so will you if you just give them a try.

Let me tell you a little history-At 3 years old we discovered that Emma had a sever problem with her teeth...after many dental visits, a TON of money, undergoing complete sedation, we finally had her teeth fixed. She has just now began to relax when it is time to go to the dentist over 3 years later. I have been so worried about Henry's teeth. I know that these problems can be hereditary (they get it from there daddy...NOT me) I swear I almost brush this kids teeth out of his little head!! So when my mom found these I was interested but I am also realistic...So we made a small order and I brought home the samples.

Well lets just say...HENRY loves them. He is the one who reminds me we need to do his wippee's...He is the one who pulls a packet out every morning and every night, and he is the one who will sometime during the day go and get me a packet and say..."I need my teeth wiped" He loves the taste and I love what this is doing for him. So spiffies...you have made your way into our daily routine and we are happy to have you.
Xylitol-is a proven cavity fighter and I need everything I can get in my corner to keep my baby from having to go through what his sister did!

  • Spiffies Wipes are simple, safe and your kiddos is going to love the taste!


  • These toothwipes have been clinically shown to reduce the number of cavities in babies by 85%

  • Rubbing sore gums with chilled Spiffies Toothwipes are a great way to soothe teething pain.

Ulubulu

I am so happy to be home for a while and have my head above water so I can start to blog again, as well as do all the other day to day things I love to do.

As I mentioned in my previous blog I have been at market alot lately. The first one was the ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas. This is a hugely important show for us. We work so hard to cover the over 1,000,000 square feet of vendor space, searching for all the unique products that you know and love us for. Over the next couple of weeks I will be updating you guys on all the cool things I found!

Ulubulu is a company that we have been familiar with for several years but they were previously known as personalized pacifiers. I found this company before Henry was born and I was so excited. I just love the sayings. Henry and I would get stopped all the time so people could read what his paci said. I think they are too funny but even more I love that you can get your babies name on their own paci. What are GREAT idea. Not every baby goes to day care but at some point you will have your babies with other babies and it is so nice to know who's binkie is who's. Now Henry does go to daycare so I know that the daycare workers always know his paci because his name is right there--Black and White! These personalized paci's come in a variety of colors and sayings. We already have a huge selection at each of our 3 locations with numerous cute sayings. ( These looks great as a package topper!) If you would like to have yours custom made we can do that to...You will get 3 paci's in your color of choice with your precious baby's name on them. These are a great baby gift!
There is also a new silicone bib that Ulubulu makes that we just got in. Are these not the CUTEST bibs ever!!! They have a really great closure on the back and that all important "pelican" lip to the front that catches all the crumbs!!!

How Hip are you?

Well according to my 6 year old "I Rock" but my 13 year old girl...not so much!!! However, I think these just might help my plite. Ms. E came in the store yesterday and spied these and almost flipped her lid. She begged and begged..."Please Please...what can I do to get these" My reply "ASK SANTA" So what are they...only to coolest...the hotest...new IPod/MP3 accessories you can find. CHIC BUDS. These Chic Bugs Earphones are retractable (so great for kids or grown ups who constantly get those cords tangled up. They come in Grape, Marshmellow, Watermellon, Blueberry, and Sour Apple. Yes, those are swarovski crystals.

Chicboom...Ms. A has had several portable speakers over the years and none were all that great. They all broke relativly quickly and we were generally unimpressed. Now these babies...WOW can the blow!!! The sound they produce is unbelievable quality and they are so tiny. Litterally the size of a lip gloss ball. Every stocking is going to need to have one of these. Sport Headphones-ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! Are these really back in style. Well according to my 13 year old YES!!! She has been begging us for a pair for a few months now....So of course if we are going to get these 1980 throw backs...they are going to knock your socks off.


And don't worry...we didn't forget your the guys in your life either...While they wont sport the swarovski crystals they can't get any cooler than these Rockbuds..also retractable!

A good nights sleep!

A good nights sleep is worth a mint!! Literally, for me it is sanity. It is the difference in being a good mom, wife, and employee and being a BEAR!!!! Shad and I have worked so hard to ensure a welcome sleep environment for our kids both for them as well as for us. These Cloud B products have been great tools from birth to present day with both Ms. E and Mr. H. They each sleep with the Twilight Turtle. I love that in the middle of the night if they wake up they can just reach over and turn on their turtles and see stars on the ceiling. Ms. E's favorite color is blue right now and so each night after we say our prayers and I turn her turtle on she says blue please. That turtle is now 6 years old. We change his batteries every few months and she love him.
Now Mr. H has had his turtle in his room since birth and I turned it on each night before I closed the door but his turtle has now found it's way into his crib. He is just 2 years old but he will turn his turtle on at night and sometimes in the morning. He has one of those great DARK rooms so this morning for example he woke up and called for me while I was in the midst of putting Ms. E's hair in a ponytail. I called out that I would be there in a minute and to turn on his turtle. When I opened the door his room was filled with little green stars and he was happy.
The Twilight Turtle stays on for about 20 minutes and it can shoot starts in green, blue and yellow.


This is the Twilight LadyBug. She is exactly the same as the Twilight Turtle but in cute LadyBug form. Ms. E really wants one of her as well...not that she is giving up her turtle but in addition too!








These last two little guys are great also. These stuffies are both sound machines. White noise is so important for newborns. You may remember the bear with the mother's heartbeat. Well these two guys are an updated version of that. Neither of these were available when Ms. E was born so I put a TV in her room and turned it to a static channel. It worked well. About 3 months after she was born we got in the sheep. We both loved it!!! Infact she still gets the sheep out every once in a while to play with. Mr. H got a Gentle Giraffe and he still lives with him daily, even 2 years later.
I hope that these additions will help you and your kiddo's get some much needed rest!
PS...The Sleep Sheep and Gentle Giraffe also come in a travel size. They are really good for new puppies as well!!!

From the Mouth of a Momma!

This is Sarah Deaton. She has 2 wonderful boys and has shopped with us for a couple of years. She came in the other day to find a solution for tiny boy who was slumping in his infant carrier. I showed her to options. This is what she has to say about the SnugginGo.
My sweet little Colin was born 4 weeks early, and was so tiny that he was dwarfed in his car seat. I had rolled up receiving blankets all around him but his poor little head still flopped around. Not only did I feel like he was uncomfortable, I felt that he wasn't very secure and safe in the car seat. I went to look for a car seat insert for him and was faced with a few different options. Although the Snuggingo was a bit more expensive than some of the others, I decided that it would be the best option. It has been AWESOME! He sits in the car seat comfortably, and his head never falls forward anymore. He seems so safe and secure and comfortable! It was worth every penny, and I would recommend this to any new mom!
BEFORE
AFTER

Thanks again Sarah for writing the review!!! We just love this product. It is so great for the infant carrier, high chair, swing, mamaRoo, bouncy seat, the list goes on and on!!!

Baby it's Cold Outside




Ok not really...but soon...Ok not really but you know when we will start having those mornings where it is 50 and then 80 by noon. I have said it before and I will say it again...Baby Legs are the GREATEST. Just a few days ago we left really early and a cold front had pushed through our area (for like 1/2 a min) so when we left the house it was around 60 degrees...We got just out of the garage and Mr. H says..."Mamma...it's FREEZING!!" Luckily I ran back in grabbed his football baby legs and he was set..Not to mention he LOVED them. When he got to school I asked his teachers to take them off as it got warmer...Later that afternoon I picked Henry up and he told me..."I not take my footballs off. I love them" I am hooked!! These can also be worn as arm warmers with short sleeves as well. Oh ya and GREAT for diaper changing made easy!!!
